    • 5 rights women have that men don't (Last post by OB1Shinobi)
    • Quote: Quote: You can not change the system and expect things to get better without first changing the people who support that system. Very well said, Rugadd. This is true, whether you are talking about changing laws, changing a business or even changing how you run your house. But I will take it one step further. You cannot change the system and expect things to get better without changing the people who support that system, but you have to first change yourself and demonstrate your influence to others in order for them to change and then move on to changing the system. Any and all change has to first come from you. When people see you change, then question it. When they watch you work and fight for what you believe in, they will be inspired. When they see you are commited and accountable to your fight, they will start to rally behind you. When you stand before the people as a leader, you then cast the vision for what you are wanting to do. The people have already bought into you and now you have to get them to buy into the vision. Once they have bought into the vision, then you can create a movement. None of this can happen until you agree and effectively change yourself and then prove yourself. This goes for anything from business to politics to managing your own home. May the Force be with you all. cosigned
    • Hey! Let's Open The Vaccination Can Of Worms! (Last post by Red_Eye_Jedi)
    • Quote: ..... Being against injecting yourself with one of the most potent neurotoxins EVER discovered doesn't mean you are against vaccines. The analogy I used earlier is that being against spraying fruits and vegetables with potent neurotoxins doesn't make you against fruits and vegetables. This debate is framed so that it is a false dichotomy, and in reality it is much more complex than that. Quote: firewalled scientific journals. Quote: just watch this instead If you don't want to read journals watch this video by the University of Calgary. The evidence on how mercury destroys your brain is overwhelming and unquestionable.
    • Bad Dreams (Last post by RyuJin)
    • sometimes dreams are messages from the universe, sometimes messages from our subconscious, sometimes just plain fantasy from our imaginations...once you learn to identify them you can then learn from them or take control of them...bend the dreamworld as you see fit...
    • Rants far and wide (Last post by Edan)
    • You ask a question, but only so you can peddle your own conspiracy theories. Why bother asking if you're already biased against the answer? People answer because they think you actually care about their opinion... Since you don't, dont bloody bother! (Hint, not about totjo!)

    • Real World Jedi (Last post by OB1Shinobi)
    • Quote: this woman Ingrid the first thing that ingrid says that i want to highlight is around 1:45 she says "i stopped and i said - universe, what is it that i need to do next? what is it that i need to hear?" this type of receptivity and openness is one of the pillars of Jedi life pillars are the things without which a structure does not stand jedi belive in the Force and consciously solicit and remain alert for its message to them personally the Force speaks to everyone in ways tailored to the individual but common ways of geting our attention are through synchronicities / coincidences well timed moments which are outside of the normal patterns of events activities behaviours of the elements of our environments recurrence of images thoughts symbols events which have a history of being personally meaningful intuition and gut insight sudden realizations direct answers which come in the form of seemingly unrelated events which are eerily appropriate the next thing ingrid says is that she CLEARLY HEARD that everything she had been doing before had been leading her to this moment that can seem like a no brainer to a cynic but we live as a piece of a larger pattern and no matter if we belive it or acknowledge it each of us, most especially each who walks the Jedi path, is being being groomed by the Force for specific reasons and purposes we have a destiny, if we choose to follow it (paradoxical but true) and there are moments in our lives where the Force allows us a glimps of this continuity underneath the surface of our lives so that we may galvanize ourselves to our inborn abilities and strengths and our potentials and our life challenges, all of which culminate into the beginings of our tasks and our contributions to the world then ingrid goes on to share her personal vision this is one of the first life tasks of a Jedi; vision what is your vision? we all need to be able to answer this question ingrids personal vision is "create a global sustainable future" and she specifically wants to "empower women" in this endeavour i agree with her vision and i rather like women so i think its great personally i like empowering everybody but if you want to specialize in empowering women; cool men; cool children; cool white people; cool black people; cool yellow, red, old, short, skinny, fat, tall, lexdysic, hypoglocemic, whatever cool go for it she want to "empower a billion women by 2020" i dont know precisely what her methodogy or criteria are for measuring this empowerment in all honesty im not really interested her vision as i understand it is congruent with my own; we're moving in the same general direction, (empowerment, sustainability) so i have no worries in passing along her tedtalk i dont need to personally rally under her banner because ive got my own. she goes on to speak of the importance of understanding "the power of possibility. the power of belife. and the power of turning the impossible into the possible" she shares a story about herself and it begins with her as a fourth grader when the principal of her school calls her parents to explain to them that she is retarded frankly, i think he was on to something but let me say the real awesomeness of ingrid is that she started off just a little off and still she grew into a powerful capable and articulate personality (AND SHES HOT) anyways her parents dont accept this pronouncement and they eventually find another "special" school for her to go to this new school offers her "special" classes to help her learn the subject matter she has trouble in theclasses so she ends up with a personal tutor because she lives so far away from the school her parents insist the school send a bus to pick her up and drop her off instead of getting the cute little short bus that picked me up when i was special she gets a bigarse ginormo bus that sits like 60 people this bus is so big that it causes problems for the school the school sets aside an area for th bus to park also she is the last to be dropped off and the first to leave the kids make fun of her and call her the "special" girl she says a point came where she thought "my parents sent me to a special school on a special bus to special classes with my special tutor; IM FREAKING SPECIAL!" and she means this in an awesome way. this is another of the pillars of Jedi development you have to realize your own awesomeness this starts for many people with the simple decision to allow ones self the possibility of one day becoming awesome in some small personal way thats all you need to start and it will take you to your destiny if you let it she calls this "the possibility of choice. the possiblity of beliving in my own possibility" she says "thats critical as we move out into living our fullness living to everything that we can be is understanding the power of our own possibility" now she talks about wanting to build a million dollar company and she says she doesnt know exactly how to get there so what she does is get a mentor familiar? we all need mentors personally i think we should all get as many mentors as we can get who are where we want to be and who have done what we want to do next. she keeps going back to her mentor and saying "what about this? what about this? what about THIS?" he keeps saying "no" and hes right. she mentions that she meditates every day she eventually asks the force again "look i need an answer" she gets an answer she goes on to say you have to get comfortable with being uncomfortable thats good advice for everyone get comfortable with being uncomfortable its a very Jedi thing to say thanks ingrid
    • Advice (Last post by Burn_Phoenix)
    • Hello mate, I found that, to echo OB1, you need to believe in yourself. You are of worth, just as much as anyone else. If this has been going on for a long time and is proving to be emotionally damaging (possibly physically too) then believe me the best thing is to remove yourself from the situation and surround yourself with people that love and support you, rather than those that bring negativity. From my experience, I had this with my ex for 7 years and we had 2 children, so it was incredibly hard for me to 'get out' and am still not entirely free as I have to 'deal' with her regularly due to our children and contact etc; it is NOT your fault. You are the victim here and you need help, unfortunately due to the position you are in you feel you are alone and those that maybe should traditionally be there to help you are the ones causing you pain. Therefore, you need to take the necessary steps for yourself. Firstly, you have your own moral compass, you know when something is right and wrong. Stand up for what you consider to be right. If someone is treating you so badly you can not live by their standards, they will be tainted. Secondly, you need to look after yourself, because no one else can or will. Thirdly, you need to protect those closest to you (i'm thinking of children, I don't know if that's relevant, but anyone who can not fend for themselves). Though you should note that this does not necessarily mean you should stay at risk believing that remaining where you are will help them (i did that, it doesn't work like you'd think). Lastly, you always have a choice. As mentioned in previous posts, change is not always bad. We fear change because we fear the unknown, but life is constantly changing, and even an initial bad change (i.e. ending a relationship) could prove to lead to a long-term benefit (i.e. new and happier relationship or general freedom). Be strong, take time to consider what is the right thing given all the information you have available, and pursue that. However, do not put yourself in some sort of life threatening position, obviously I do not know the level of abuse you are experiencing, if it's anywhere near life threatening then ignore what I said above and call the police the first chance you get and explain everything. Never give up hope, things will be hard but there is help out there if you want it and are willing to ask for it (obviously we are all here to help should you want, I was meaning something more immediate such as police etc.) May the Force be with you friend. Feel free to PM me (if you have that sorted now) if you want to talk further.
